Description

Located on Hwy 88 just West of Kirkwood this lake basin contains climbing for everyone, from easy access cragging at Old Camp Bluff, tons of bouldering including the Freaks and Eratica and easy multi pitch at Emigrant wall.
For those adventurous enough there are many unreported areas and maybe even a little virgin rock.

See individual areas for parking and approach beta.
